about the condition of social security and of medicare, both teetering the tremendous federal deficit that seems to be getting bigger and bigger and wondering, how in the world we are going to pay for this. >> you raise an extremely important point. a bit of history, and then my sense of what is next. at the beginning of 2009, it was theç general judgmentç of çeconomists, conservatives, moderates, liberals, economists all across the political spectrum that there was a real prospect our country could have had aç depressionú prospect of deflation. it said there wasç an argument then for stimulusç legislation. you can debate whether it should have included this or that or something else, but there was a consensus that some stimulus was needed. çnow, certainly, many months later, we wake up and our government owns a car companyt( an insurance company, an investment house, and people are çsaying, excuse me? what is next? çgivenç all of these deficits? and i do believe that it isççe for the government to put in place something of an exit strategy soç that, in some
the expansion includes higher taxes, includes medicare cuts. it also at the end of the day, according to the congressional budget office, does very little for most people in this country to actually reduce the cost of their health care insurance. in fact, what we've seen through the studies that have been done by the c.b.o., the congressional budget office, by the c.m.s. actuary is for most americans they are going to see at best their health insurance premiums stay the same and if you're in the market, go up. the health care bill is an example of this runaway federal spending. in the latter part of that debate, we got a response from the c.b.o. to a question that was posed by the senator from alabama, senator sessions, with regard to how the accounting is done on medicare. because one of the arguments that we heard throughout the course of the debate is that it would extend the life span of medicare. in fact, when the c.b.o., the the question was posed of them: what happens with this additional medicare tax and these medicare cuts that would be imposed upon providers and on senior ci
upfront? all the other states lose medicare vantage within five years, but florida is to keep it? why? these have to be dropped. with all respect to senator reid who says he cannot pass health care without these deals, then he is going nowhere. house members are disappointed, like the american people. there are two things to watch. legislation being made and sausage. -- there are two things you do not want to watch. this should stand on its merit. michigan was one of the first it's economically. -- one of worst states economically. let's pass this on policy. i always thought they would do a trigger. no greater than the rate of inflation, if it goes, trigger a public option. that is one when they talk about a compromise. that makes sense. this the one this side of the room. -- let's go to this side of the room. [inaudible] but it could all be for naught. congress starts january 2011 and said they disagree with health care. they could get rid of it. every congress has a right to review it. congress has been talking about this since teddy roosevelt first proposed a 100 years ago. for us
social security and medicare and medicaid, probably the two main things basically bleeding us dry. but basically it is suicide to talk about those two. so we are going to have to go with, i guess, the spending cuts that he suggested. that is basically all i have to say. host: little rock, arkansas. paul on the republican line. caller: the morning, greta. i would like the president to talk about jobs and the economy. and during the campaign he promised to save millions of jobs. also promised to create millions of dollars. since he has been president he has created a huge deficit, sent $100 million to haiti, and there are many people right here in america who are unemployed, people who need jobs, and i feel that he should concentrate on taking care of the american people first. host: that is the headline in "the wall street journal" and "the new york times." it says -- host: new york city, luis, independent line. the trustee secretary will be testifying about what he knew about aig and that will be at 10:00 a.m. eastern time live on c-span3. also testifying as former treasury secret

. these are some of the hearings we have had. you're going to hear about the medicare advantage. we did nursing home standards and passed the law 25 years ago and have never had a hearing on that. long-term care insurance, are consumers protected? june 16th, termination of individual health insurance policies. if you are buying an individual family policy eiffel application, right? we had two hearings on this. when you fill up the insurance policy, most companies have about 1400 different codes. you go to the local drugstore in the fill up the prescription. if you trigger a code that will review your policy because with that code triggered might be very expensive medical treatment might be facing in the future and therefore they will jump you -- dump you. for instance, one family as they were filling out the form the told him to put out he was 180 pounds but he was really 250 pounds. they dumped him and said he lied on his application. when it terminated from your health insurance policy, who do you appeal to? the company that just the end user you do not have a repeal rights. -- the company th

insurance, lower your costs, all the insurance reforms, we're going to lower the cost of medicare and medicaid and it won't cost anybody anything. that's great politics. it's just not true. so, there's got to be some test of realism in any of these proposals, mine included. i've got to hold myself accountable. i guarantee the american people will hold themselves -- will hold me accountable if what i'm selling doesn't actually deliver. >> mr. president, point of clarification, what's in the better solutions book are all the legislative proposals -- >> no, i understand that, i've actually read your bills. >>-- throughout 2009. >> i understand. >> so, rest assured, the summary document that you received is backed up by precisely the kind of detailed legislation that speaker pelosi and your administration has been busy ignoring for 12 months. >> mike. wait. hold on a second -- no, no, no, no, no, no, no. hold on a second. guys, you know, mike, i've read your legislation. i mean, i take a look at this stuff. and the good ideas, we take. but here's -- here's the thing -- here's the thin
, medicare and otherwise, being asked to pay for that additional -- setting aside something that unionized workers will not have to face for an additional five years? >> i think some of the revenue questions are obviously part of the discussions that are ongoing. the president has made a commitment that he will keep to ensure that this legislation is fully paid for. again, it is something that is a little different that is going on in washington these days. this is a proposal that will be scored and it will be rendered a judgment as to the fact that the president will pay for every ççdime in this bill. the compensated for in taxes for additional medicare savings? >> again, i think some of the discussions are ongoing. >> on healthcare, the last month or six weeks you all have proceeded with no republican support, no republican negotiations as far as anyone can tell, 60-40 votes. and it looked like you were on the glide path to passing it in the senate's with democratic- only boats. you now faced the prospect in çmassachusettsç of possibly needing a republican vote. is there some reg
, what are entitlements? medicare, social security, veterans benefits, things that cannot be controlled that if you're entitled to them, you get them. and you look at interest on the debt is what -- is 5%. if you look at discretionary defense, it's 18%. and if you look at everything else the federal government does that everybody talks about: education, agriculture, justice, education, the 22 departments in homeland security, it is just 16% of what is spent. so if you add together the 50% and the 5% of interest, you see 55% of everything the federal government spends this year cannot -- cannot be controlled. you have to spend it. and so all the rest that's discretionary is rather small in comparison. if you project that out ten years -- and i must tell you, new numbers are coming out tomorrow, so this is the latest number that i have -- entitlements go up to 56% and interest on the debt to 14%. so that is 70% of everything that is spent in the year 2019 if things are projected forward cannot be controlled. discretionary defense is 16% and nondiscretionary -- again, everything else -- 14

done more with cost containment or fixing medicare which is already broken instead of just expanding it. there's something in between doing nothing and just doing this bill, isn't there? >> of course, there's always something in between. and i think that the president spent a good deal of time trying to find a bipartisan solution, dealing with senator collins, senator grassley. come on, he spent the whole summer. i mean, i was pulling my hair out by the end of july or the beginning of august that they were still in this kind of scrum with the republican members on the finance committee. >> do you remember hanging on every word grassley said, every word snowe said? >> not really. >> collins? >> not really. >> a long time ago. >> so i think they tried. and at the end of the day, the republicans made a decision that they were just going to be at opposition and hoped that as rush limbaugh famously said, that the president would fail. >> oh, okay. all right. >> that's their political strategy. >> let me ask you -- well, because they could honestly believe that some of these things aren't the

reform as a way to trim medicare spending to fund coverage expansion a lot of these voters were very suspicious of this. you see them getting mobilized in a way that's very unpredictable at the time. i think this was the political mistake. rather than looking to conservative policy elites in the capital, barack obama should have looked to who were those older white republican voters who didn't necessarily love bush, who were willing to give him a chance but who had a very different set of concerns from again those inside the belt way policy wons. i think not getting that visceral sense of concern that particularly a lot of older voters who didn't vote for him in the 2008 election or who stayed home, et cetera that was a big mistake he's still paying for and has exacted some costs in the form of those from the left being disillusioned as well as those on the right. it's a much more confusing landscape. >> i think there's a lot to that. i also think that something that the president said in his inaugural address that hasn't been widely quoted but i thought was extraordinarily shrewd, h
